IT’S a huge disappointment that the UK has to kowtow to China to get a nuclear power station built. There was a time when the UK built its own nuclear power stations. That was before Maggie [Thatcher] privatised many industries, throwing millions out of work, when many of these nationalised industries were keeping many off the dole – thus squandering the benefits of North Sea Oil.

Tony Blair continued with this privatisation and pointless wars, trashing private pensions on the way. The privatisation continues to this day, with the NHS the next target.

Jeremy Corbyn may have some crackpot ideas but his pledge to renationalise the power companies has merit. It’s time to let these slimy politicians know that the people have had a gutful of privatisations imposed on them.
